I have just started reading the first volume. It's so wonderful! I swear I was hooked after the first paragraph.

It's really hard not to qualify it as 'political', it clearly is. And there are a lot of parallels with real life that are hard not to notice. A highly advanced, wealthy metropolis surrounded by way poorer, underdeveloped districts, constantly humiliated by this said power but, also, constantly reminded by the metropolis of their togheterness and shared destiny and stuff.

Yeah.

It clearly is and I love that fact. It takes a stab at things we have gotten used to around us. But it takes those things to a higher level.

^ This is why I absolutely love these books. They just have so much more substance than other YA books out there that shall remain nameless XD I think the books totally live up to their hype. I wish the movie had been as excellent as the books, but that often happens with movie adaptations. Don't get me wrong, I really loved the movie, but I almost always like the books better than the movies.

To be honest, out of all young adult bestsellers, this is probably my favorite.

The plot is ambitious, it doesn't just give you very vivid scenes and landscapes and amazing flesh-out characters, but it also makes you think.

I'm really into it. I'm sucked in.

Good luck! Oh and if it starts off a bit boring, just push through it. The beginning is a little boring.

Most stories have a boring beginning. That's why an author needs to make interesting characters to help you get through the boring parts of the their stories.

Well said Yamichan.

Some people put the book down after only reading a page and I'm like WTF read more of it before you decide not to read.

Question for you guys. I've seen the first movie and enjoyed it very much. Is it still worth starting the books? Is there a lot in the book that isn't in the film?

Yes! They left a lot out in character developement and relationship developement. As well as changed and added things that set the second book into motion. It's a great read and I think you should read it. The movie gives it some justice, but changes a lot. Hope this helps. Smile

Ok, so I finished the first book. Are the other two as good as the first? Do I really want to continue with the others?

Alright. I read the book first, then I finally saw the movie a few days ago. I didn't like the movie. I feel the characters lacked the depth they had in the book. If I had never read the book I don't think I would have known what was going on it a lot of the parts.

I honestly wish she had chosen either. I don't see why she had to chose one. I did feel at the end, it felt like she had settled. I hate that she eventually gave in to having children just to shut Peeta up. No person should ever have to give in to having children just to shut their partner up.
